Spurs break Chelsea hoodoo as Arsenal push Stoke to relegation brink

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang proved to be Arsenal's hero as they beat Stoke City 3-0 in the Premier League Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang proved to be Arsenal's hero as they beat Stoke City 3-0 in the Premier League

There were times when the Emirates appeared nearly half empty, though the fans that did show up were treated to a 3-0 victory over Paul Lamber's relegation battlers; Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck twice - once from the penalty spot - before Alexandre Lacazette rounded off the victory with a spot kick of his own.

"It's the price we have to pay for not challenging for the championship". Spurs are only two points behind third-placed Liverpool, having played a game less.

We missed the basic ingredients that makes football great - to play with power and enthusiasm.

However, he passed the responsibility to Alexandre Lacazette, who converted. Arsenal's 3-0 win over Stoke made it four wins in a row for the Gunners for the first time since October of previous year.

Lambert was convinced the penalty should not have been given as Martin Indi, although approaching from a position behind Ozil, had got enough on the ball.

It's Arsenal's only route back to the Champions League.

In the second half, Stoke remained resolute in their defending and were only exposed on few occasions on the counter-attack. It was more stretched and we kept losing cheap balls.

Signed by Tottenham from Milton Keynes Dons in 2015 for only five million pounds (now about $7 million), Alli has 36 goals and 25 assists in 100 Premier League games.

"At the moment we are in the thick of it, we need to win games and stick together, so we need to keep believing - we have no choice".

It can often take time for new players to become accustomed to new teams.

"In the second half we tried to up it and as the game went on, they got exhausted, we upped it and our attacking play was too much for them".

The home side also made numerous changes to the lineup from their previous fixture, most likely with their Thursday night Europa League quarter-final first leg at home to CSKA Moscow in mind.
